This Porsche 959 Prototype Is One of Very Few Surviving Examples In Existence
Developing a car from scratch starts with some drawing and calculations, then the building of test prototypes, then pre-production cars, and eventually the pilot production vehicles. Most of the time, test prototypes are usually destroyed when their use has been exceeded, yet here we are looking at a test prototype of the Porsche 959 – a car that is believed to be one of the few surviving examples of the F-Series prototypes from 1985. It’s currently listed for sale on Mechatronik for an undisclosed price, but is It truly authentic?

A Very Special 1994 Mercedes W124 Brabus 6.5 Recently Emerged From The Shadows
The Mercedes W124 is praised for its build quality and the ability to survive just about anything (or so they say). When it comes to performance versions, the 500E is the first to come to mind, since it technically laid the foundation for a future lineup of V8-powered Mercedes performance sedans. Then came the E60 AMG “Hammer” with a bigger V-8 and more power. The Brabus 6.5, however, is even more special. In addition to being even more powerful, there’s only one in existence.
Cool Car For Sale: 2001 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT in Monterey Blue
Lately, we have been turning a lot of attention towards Lamborghini. Something that was made inevitable with the revival of the iconic Lamborghini Countach. The Gandini-designed Countach was produced for 16 years before it was finally replaced by the Lamborghini Diablo. Although the latter did not manage to achieve quite the same status as its predecessor, it was better in every measurable way. With this in mind, a very clean example of the Diablo just popped up for sale, at a surprisingly low price.
A Very Special Maybach 57S Coupe Never Made It To It’s Original Buyer For The Craziest Reason
Every now and then, we come across highly exclusive vehicles with an interesting story behind them. This is exactly the case with this Maybach 57S Coupe. Maybach is a very old car brand, which was briefly revived by Mercedes, back in 2002. Two versions – the 57 and 62 – were produced, each with their respective derivatives. Although over 3,000 cars were built in total, there were no coupes. That is until German coachbuilder Xenatec stepped in and converted some of the shorter 57S models. This is one of them and it was supposed to be delivered to a certain head of state - something, which never happened.
This Mercedes SLR McLaren by MSO is Rare, but Is it Worth Bugatti Chiron Money?
Built between 2003 and 2009, the Mercedes SLR McLaren was a modern-day tribute to the 1950s 300 SLR. The super Gran tourer preceded AMG’s SLS and GT models, both inspired by the 300 SL. Throughout its production cycle, there were some limited edition versions, such as the 722 Edition. There was also a race-prepped version of that, which you could buy. There is, however, a much rarer version of the Mercedes SLR McLaren, which was presented in a “Seen through Glass” video. It was developed by MSO (McLaren Special Operations) and now, one of the 25 made is for sale.
Ultra Rare Street Legal AMG CLK GTR to go Under the Hammer at Pebble Beach
If you’ve ever wanted to own a road-legal race car, well here is your chance, provided you’ve got some deep pockets that is. Real deep. The CLK GTR is a road-going race car that Mercedes-Benz produced in the late 90s to comply with racing regulations that required them to make a set number of road-going variants. Only 25 were built, with 20 being coupes and 5 being roadsters. This particular example was number nine of those 25. Also, aside from the name, the CLK GTR had nothing in common with the CLK of the time.
This 1967 Chevy Impala Is Gorgeous and Period Correct, But It Comes At a Steep Cost
The Impala is one of the most popular sedans to have rolled out of Chevrolet’s factory. The sedan went on to live across ten generations, spanning over six decades, if you discount for a few years in between when the nameplate was inactive. Chevy tweaked the Impala heavily in its initial years. The fact that it was in its third generation in its third year of production is a testament to that.
But, the fourth-gen Impala, launched in 1965, took the success to the next level. It set an all-time industry annual sales record of more than one million units in the U.S. This makes it one of the most popular models of the car and highly sought-after today despite being available in plenty in the pre-worshipped market.
A period-correct 1967 Impala has come up for sale that looks exquisite and well-maintained. But, it comes at a steep price of $55,000. Does this interest you?
This Mercedes SLS AMG EV Is Just 1 of 9 Made - Here’s What You Need to Know
Its full name was the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, and it was supposed to mark a new era for Mercedes-Benz, one that brought to market emission-free super sports cars with technology borrowed from Formula 1. Unfortunately, the all-electric SLS didn’t quite kick it for the carmaker, who would need almost a decade more to unveil the EQC, its first all-electric road car. Which happened to be an SUV, not a sports car.
Here’s all you need to know about the SLS AMG EV.

Be A Part Of Cocaine History With Pablo Escobar’s 1974 Porsche 911 RSR
A rare and provenance-heavy 1974 Porsche 911 RSR is now up for grabs at DuPont Registry for the tidy sum of $2.2 million. The specific 911 RSR is the IROC edition. It was built to race at the 1974 International Race of Champions (IROC), and only 15 examples were made, 12 of which were for drivers and three that served as spare units. This particular model went to Brazilian racing legend Emerson Fittipaldi, hence its nickname “the Fittipaldi Car.” Other prominent individuals have owned this car throughout its life, including John Tunstall, Roger Penske, and, most notably, drug lord Pablo Escobar.
The Schuppan Porsche 962CR Is Made Out Of Pure Dream Fabric
Four. That’s how many members the Schuppan Porsche 962 CR Owners’ Club would number if anyone bothered to set it up. By contrast, head counting at the equally fictitious Ferrari 250 GTO Owners’ Club would yield over 30 members. As things stand, then, the 962CR is quite enticing given that few road-legal cars are faster than this bubbly-eyed creation and fewer still are rarer. So why aren’t you buying it already? Well, the answer doesn’t only tie itself to the existence of multiple Swiss bank accounts...
Ken Block’s 2002 Subaru WRX STi Is For Sale, And You Know You Want It
Remember The Good Old Days with This Lotus Elise S1
The Lotus Elise represents everything that’s great about a sports car. It’s light, tiny, and it allows you to have fun way before you reach impoundable speeds. Sadly, the ultra-light, two-door delight is on its way out and that means only one thing: special editions such as this ’Type 49’ model built some 21 years ago will only become more desirable and more expensive in future years. Want one? Get one and do so faster than that 6.1-second 0-60 mph time.

This Rare 1995 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione II Could Be Yours
Since 2017, Lancia has been selling just one car, the Ypsilon, in Italy. The iconic brand is pretty much dead outside its home country and its future remains uncertain. But even though Lancia has been struggling in recent years, its heritage is still remembered thanks to nameplates like the Delta.

Car for Sale: 1988 BMW E30 M3
BMW M3 needs no introduction. The new model with the kidney grille has faced a lot of flak, but that’s because the yesteryear models had set the bar so high.
